This is a repaint of the Dino Cattaneo S3B "Viking". These textures represent a Viking of VS-38, "Red Griffins" as it appeared on the USS Ranger in June, 1989. On April 17, 2004, the squadron was officially disestablished at NAS North Island as the Vikings were eliminated from USN inventory. The textures are those of an artist interpretation and resulting rendition. These are textures only, you need Dino Cattaneo's Lockheed S-3B Viking freeware package. Repaint by Russel R. Smith.

description="The Lockheed S-3 Viking is a four-seat twin-engine jet aircraft that was used by the U.S. Navy to identify and track enemy submarines. In the late 1990s, the S-3B's mission focus shifted to surface warfare and aerial refueling. The Viking also provided electronic warfare and surface surveillance capabilities to the carrier battle group. A carrier-based, subsonic, all-weather, multi-mission aircraft with long range, it carried automated weapon systems, and was capable of extended missions with in-flight refueling. Because of the engines low-pitched sound, it was nicknamed the "Hoover" after the vacuum cleaner brand.\nThe S-3 was retired from front-line fleet service aboard aircraft carriers by the US Navy in January 2009, with its missions being assumed by other platforms such as the P-3C Orion, SH-60 Seahawk, and F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. Several examples continue to be flown by Air Test and Evaluation Squadron THREE ZERO (VX-30) at Naval Base Ventura County / NAS Point Mugu, California for range clearance and surveillance operations on the NAVAIR Point Mugu Range, and a single example is operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at the NASA Glenn Research Center."
